During the classic pre-rinse in cleaning processes, Whereas, the surfaces are rinsed to remove product residues on one hand and to improve the cleaning effect of the subsequent cleaning procedure with detergent on the other hand. ClO2 disinfects the water used and also has a storage effect that can improve the hygienic surrounding. To reduce the risk of contamination, mixed water can be treated for foaming or an intermediate rinse/Fumigation can be conducted. The final flashed water converted to standard drinkable water helps to tackle microbiological challenges by adding ClO2. The disinfection process with chlorine dioxide can substitute hot water rinsing under specific conditions. Wherefore a ClO2 rinse should be performed every 2 hours (2-3 minutes). Gradually, cleaning can then be shortened and biofilm formation simultaneously minimized.
With chlorine dioxide, you acquire one of the most effective oxidising agents, which can be used in small quantities in conformity to drinking water regulations. Unlike many other disinfectants, chlorine dioxide is capable of preventing the formation of biofilms and simultaneously decomposing existing biofilms.
